Clearwater Valley News: Busy week in valley schools

It was a week of back-to-school for me, spending time at three area schools. Tuesday afternoon, I stopped at Clearwater Valley elementary school for the spring art show/art-in-action. I walked into a gym filled with happy children, with glitter, glue and paint in abundance and music setting the pace. Displays of artwork created by each student in the school adorned the old room dividers (donated to the school from the Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forest). Parents checked out the art displays, visited with each other and watched the art-in-action happening before their eyes.

State could, would do better job with forests

The Forest Service recently has asked for public input to help them with forest management methods to better take care of our forests. To me, this seems like an attempt to justify their ongoing program of talking a lot, but not saying much, while grabbing more forest land to control, while spending virtually nothing to reduce the wildfire fuels they have allowed to accumulate in all the forests.
